12 & 13 August 7:30pm … ish….on Braye Beach: MAMMA MIA

Rehearsals for the Alderney Theatre Group’s all-singing, all-dancing outdoor production of the famous film musical “MAMMA MIA” are well underway.  This non-stop show will be absolutely spectacular!

Directed and produced  by Charlotte Newton and  performed by a 25-strong cast – which includes many new faces –  the chosen stage for this lively show will be Douglas Quay.  The audience is invited to take their seats on Braye Beach  (bring your own rugs, blankets or chairs).

There will be two performances –  immediately after Alderney Week finishes –  Monday 12th & Tuesday 13th August. The dress rehearsal will be on Sunday 11th around  7:30pm and will be open to the public.

Obviously, the tides will dictate the time of the performances, expected to be around 7:30p to 8:00pm, but the exact times will be confirmed closer to the date.

Admission to all performances is free. However, the Alderney Theatre Group will be rattling their collection buckets for donations and are hoping the audience will show their appreciation for such splendid and unique entertainment by digging deep into their pockets.

More details will be publicised shortly on this  website and on posters across the island. Meanwhile, make sure you save the dates.

20 September 8:00pm- Island Hall : KING LEAR by Oddbodies

 This is Shakespeare, but not as he or you know it!

Adapted and performed by Paul Morel and directed by John Mowat with all of Oddbodies’ trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair, this is an inventive, irreverent and highly accessible take on one of Shakespeare’s most brilliant plays.

Blindness, betrayal, delusion, deceit, love, loyalty, lust and greed –it’s all here in this fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heart-breaking production.

The event will take place in the Island Hall. Doors & Bar open 7:30pm. Tickets £15 will go on sale at Shirley’s in Victoria Street  in August:  If you are not on the island, please email to reserve tickets.

Just read these reviews below and you know you don’t want to miss this performance!

4 October 2019 8:00pm -Island Hall: Sunny Ormonde – “LILLY BELLAMY OF THE ARCHERS”

Sunny has been playing the “outrageous and raunchy Lilian Bellamy” in Radio 4’s The Archers for the past 14 years and has become one of the listener’s most favourite characters! Her antics have kept the nation gripped and entertained, whether it be riding round Ambridge on a Harley Davidson, drinking the Bull and  Cider shed dry with Eddie Grundy, absconding to Costa Rica with her beloved and very wicked Tiger or recklessly kicking off her sling-backs and leaping into bed with Tigers brother Paul- Oh the repercussions!!!

In this show Sunny will fill you in on all the behind the scenes stories about the World’s longest-running soap opera: an evening of anecdotes, banter, and favourite pieces from Sunny’s long and distinguished acting career- humorous and touching in turn.

PLUS a question and answer session with the audience about the making of the Archers- now in its 64th year.      Where did that laugh come from?   Did Victoria Wood really pull a pint in the Bull?  How big are Tom’s sausages?

And last but not least –A prize for the most original Archers question!!!

“Sunny dances in and out of Lilian’s character with ease, but also with Drama….Shirley Valentine…..Under Milk Wood……stories and anecdotes galore…….an evening to remember!”

You don’t have to be an Archers listener to enjoy this highly entertaining evening!  

There is something for everyone!

Tickets £18 will go on sale early September at Shirley’s in Victoria Street.  If you are not on the island, please email to reserve tickets.
